Hi, I'm having the following conflict with emerge -uDNvp world:

Code:

One or more updates have been skipped due to a dependency conflict:

x11-base/xorg-server:0

  (x11-base/xorg-server-1.13.0-r1::gentoo, ebuild scheduled for merge) conflicts with
    <x11-base/xorg-server-1.12.99 required by (x11-drivers/xf86-video-neomagic-1.2.7::gentoo, installed)


My video card is: Radeon HD 4000 series, so do I need neomagic? I hope this doesn't seem like too stupid of a question, but how do I tell what driver I'm using? I'm not having any errors or blank screens or anything, so obviously it's working fine. I would just like to resolve this conflict before it becomes a problem.

Thanks

Todd

What do you have in /etc/make.conf for VIDEO_CARDS? Or do you have a USE=VIDEO_CARDS_? Look for neomagic there and remove it, you probably don't need it.

Suspicion is that somehow you're requesting the neomagic driver, and it was not updated by the maintainer (since it's an old card) due to some semi-major API change in xorg-server 1.13...

Thanks for the reply! I have in make.conf: VIDEO_CARDS="radeon". neomagic is not there. Is there anything else that would make me request the neomagic driver?

Thanks

You need to clean it up by running emerge -a --depclean.

Well, I did that, now nothing will emerge, it's failing with a gcc problem. I tried to emerge that, and it even fails. This is just great! lol!

I'd recommend to unmerge neomagic and run emerge -atvuDN World.

if neomagic gets pulled it, see whic hpkg pulls it, if not than you are clear.

Okay, I actually cleared that problem up, apparently after depclean, my gcc profile was de-selected, I selected it using gcc-config, and back in business there!

Thanks

For sake of clarity, your active gcc was removed, you had a newer version in your system but you were using the old one.

I guess that's what happened, but not sure, this one is solved, but to what end? I left, got home only to find that my motherboard has failed, so now I'm out of a machine entirely. I did unmerge neomagic, and it was not pulled in again.

Thanks

Todd
